MPOV: The Giver

In the year 2048, after a war, the community has decided to get rid of different races and feelings. All the citizens have had their memories erased; except for the Receiver of Memory. Since the Receiver of Memory is the only individual in the community who has the memories from before, he must advise the Chief Elder, and the other Elders, on the decisions for the community.

Jonas is a 16 year old teenager who is anxious about the job he will be assigned (along with everyone else). He has two best friends: Asher and Fiona.

On the day of graduation, Everyone is assigned their jobs. Jonas is briefly skipped, as he has not been assigned a job. Instead, Jonas is to become the next Receiver of Memory, and progressively receive memories from the past receiver, The Giver. Upon assuming his role as The Receiver, Jonas learns of the Giver's past and of his child, Rosemary. She preceded Jonas as Receiver of Memory, and was so distraught from the memories that she committed suicide, by what the Community call releasing. They regard its nature as mysterious; the audience learn that it is death by lethal injection. Jonas begins to teach his findings to his friend Fiona, who he decides to share the idea of feelings with. Fiona is unsure of how she feels about feelings, but they kiss while together privately.

Jonas also shares his memories with the baby his father brought home to their house, Gabe, and develops a close relationship with him after discovering he shares the same mark on his wrist Jonas does, the mark of a potential Receiver of Memory. Jonas decides that everyone should have the memories of the past and eventually, the Giver and Jonas decide that the only way they can help the community is to go past the border of what they call Elsewhere, beyond the community, therefore releasing the memories back into the community. Jonas sneaks out at curfew, and decides to get Gabe at the Nurturing Center, who is to be released of weakness. Asher, his other longtime friend besides Fiona, tries to stop him before he leaves the neighborhood, but Jonas quickly punches him. Asher lies on the ground, stunned, and Jonas rides his bike to the Nurturing Center. He tells Fiona his plan and wants to take her with him, but she refuses and instead helps him retrieve Gabe. Before he leaves, she kisses him and helps him escape.

I actually liked this movie... how it was portrayed... the way the story unfolds... I was intrigued with their monotonous lifestyle. The ending is somewhat a giver... a little illogical but overall a good movie to watch. I was surprised it didn't hit high on our cinemas, perhaps they just don't like listening to a movie *shrugs*

Rating: 3.5/5
Directed by Phillip Noyce
Starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites

Crochet: Ups and Downs Crochet Slouchy Beanie




I made this beanie upon sis' requests... hoped she likes it ^.^
Surprisingly it was easy to make... the only setback was my yarn was thick hence not as slouchy as the original design.

What I've used:

  • 1 skein 7 ply Korean mixed cotton yarn
  • 2 pcs plastic buttons

I got this pattern from http://www.mooglyblog.com/ups-and-downs-crochet-slouchy-beanie/

This is unbelievable, I actually watched a Korean movie and it was that good that I watched till the end. Really captivating, the storyline may not be unique but the casts were really good. Enjoyed their surreal performance albeit busy reading the subtitles LOL! Just saw their accolades... no wonder they were nominated in many awards and won a few too. Bravo!

MPOV: The Expendables 3

The Expendables led by Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) and formed by Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren) and Toll Road (Randy Couture) extract former member Doctor Death (Wesley Snipes), a knives specialist and team medic, from a military prison during his transfer on a train. They recruit Doc to assist them in intercepting a shipment of bombs meant to be delivered to a warlord in Somalia. Arriving there, they reunite with Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who directs them to the drop point where Ross is surprised to find out that the arms trader providing the bombs is Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), a former co-founder of the Expendables who went rogue and was presumed dead. In the ensuing firefight, they are forced to retreat due to Stonebanks' advanced weaponry, and Caesar is severely injured in the process.


Back at the United States, CIA operative Max Drummer (Harrison Ford), the Expendables' missions manager, gives Ross a mission to capture Stonebanks in order to bring him to the Hague International Criminal Court to be tried for war crimes. Blaming himself for Caesar's injuries, Ross disbands the Expendables, not wanting his team to get killed following him, and leaves for Las Vegas where he enlists retired mercenary Bonaparte (Kelsey Grammer) to help him find a new team of younger mercenaries to pursue Stonebanks. The recruits include ex-Marine John Smilee (Kellan Lutz), nightclub bouncer Luna (Ronda Rousey), computer expert Thorn (Glen Powell) and weapons expert Mars (Victor Ortiz). Skilled sharpshooter Galgo (Antonio Banderas) advocates to be included in the team, but Ross turns him down. The new team rendezvous with Ross' rival Trench Mauser (Arnold Schwarzenegger), returning a favor for Ross, who has traced Stonebanks to Romania where he is set to make an arms deal. Ross and the new recruits infiltrate an office building used as a meeting place by Stonebanks for the deal and capture him in order to deliver him to Drummer. However, Stonebanks' men catch up to them and fire a missile at the team's van. Ross is thrown into a river, while Smilee, Luna, Thorn and Mars are captured by Stonebanks.

It was so so so hilarious! All the old actors really seemed to have a ball doing this movie! Definitely way better than the first 2. Having some young newcomers were cool but the old ones were the entertaining ones. Fun to watch for a good, hearty laugh.
